Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Thriller 3: Love Is Murder
Edited by Sandra Brown. Mira, $24.95 (608p) ISBN 978-0-7783-1344-1
If a person is known by the company she keeps, then the company of the 30 romance and suspense writers in this stellar all-original anthology speaks volumes about bestseller Brown. From Lori Armstrong's sexy "Holding Mercy" to Vicki Hinze's sweet "Wed to Death," there's romance aplenty. But there's also loads of suspense, including Lee Child's "I Heard a Romantic Story" and Cindy Gerard's "Dying to Score." Hankering for a flight of romantic fantasy? Take a trip to a bizarre Savannah neighborhood in Dianna Love's "Deadly Fixation" or to the Chicago of Patricia Rosemoor's "Hot Note." The action spans the globe... Chockablock with nifty plot twists, these stories aren't to be missed. (June)

5.0 out of 5 stars Short, suspensful, with a touch of romance June 1, 2012
SANDRA BROWN, LEE CHILD, SHERRILYN KENYON, HEATHER GRAHAM, ALLISON BRENNAN - these are some of the authors contributing to this wonderful anthology. They are twenty-nine stories of kidnapping, suspense, theft, hostages, murder, and more. But each one is centered on a love story. Each one is different but all are short, quick reads that will keep you turning the pages.

I'm not going to go into individual stories here. Suffice it to say that they are all written by some of romantic suspense's finest and are definitely worth a look.

If you like short, quick reads that will have you holding your breath, then letting it out in a sigh of relief, definitely pick this one up. You won't be disappointed. It's a great read and sure to keep you entertained.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not what I expected June 19, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a strange book. Not at all what I had expected. The twists and turns to the end of each reading leave you wondering what happened. I found that I had to read a few a couple of times. As I said, not something I was expecting but I found that I really enjoyed the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars I LOVE A MYSTERY! June 6, 2012
Format:MP3 CD
I love a mystery, you love a mystery, we all love a mystery and there are suspenseful tales aplenty (30 to be exact) found in this anthology. Love Is Murder, edited by the estimable Sandra Brown teems with suspense, danger, romance, intrigue, and all the other makings of can't-stop-listening-to-stories. With locales stretching from south Texas to the heart of a jungle to Nova Scotia there's something to intrigue everyone.

You'll find all the traditional mystery story characters as well as a few unimagined before - thieves, murderers, victims, stalkers, police, private investigators, and psychopaths. Plus these folks are brought to life by two gifted narrators - Christopher Lane and Shannon McManus. A New Englander who has taught acting Lane is the recipient of both Earphone and Audie awards. A talented and experienced performer McManus has done everything from improvisational comedy to film. Both deliver outstanding narrations.

Among the authors represented in Love Is Murder are Allison Brennan who created Lucy Kincaid, Roxanne St. Clair, William Simon, Lee Child and a host more. You'll find your favorite authors and discover new ones whose other works you'll want to hear.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love is Murder June 25, 2012
Love is Murder is a killer anthology (pun intended!) with stories written by some of today's best-selling authors. Included are stories by some of my favorite authors, such as Pamela Callow, Allison Brennan, Heather Graham, Andrea Kane, Julie Kenner, and Alexandra Sokoloff. As with any anthology, some stories are better than others, but all of them stand out in some way which makes this a very enjoyable collection. One of the best entries is 'Speechless' by Robert Browne, which will evoke your paranoia to new heights. I loved seeing some great characters like Lucy Kincaid and Claire Hedgleigh in new adventures. Love is Murder is an anthology which has a little of everything, so no matter your favorite genre, you will definitely find a story you like and perhaps a new author to follow!

5.0 out of 5 stars This treasure trove will not disappoint July 30, 2012
"Ryan 'Grit' Taylor felt snow melting in his right boot. He didn't feel whatever snow might be melting in his left boot because he didn't have a left foot, or any of his left leg below the knee. In the year since he'd lost it in a firefight in Afghanistan, he'd learned to manage with a prosthesis..."

This quote from Carla Neggers' contribution to THRILLER 3: LOVE IS MURDER is a small sample of the concise, excellent writing found throughout the book. "Cold Moonlight" is the gripping story of a wounded warrior, now working for the Secret Service as part of the detail assigned to the President of the United States. With imagination, great technique and crisp writing, Neggers tells a dynamic story in 14 short pages.

Reading this anthology is like going to the best buffet in Las Vegas and trying to decide what to have first. Will you start with the story by your favorite author, Lee Child, or Heather Graham perhaps? Or maybe select one by an author you have been wanting to read but haven't gotten around to yet, like William Simon or Roxanne St. Claire. So many books, so little time. But whether you start with an appetizer or a dessert, it will be difficult to stop with just one.

LOVE IS MURDER provides a delicious array of the genre we love so much: mystery, suspense, and a little love story thrown in for us romantics. It seems that mystery readers have a commonality that seeks good to triumph over evil, wrongs to be righted, justice to be done, and the hero to get the girl. We like closure at the end of the books and are disappointed when the bad guys win.

It will be difficult to declare which story is your favorite. Perhaps at some point, it will be the story about the wedding crasher who robs the guests and kidnaps the bride.

Thought about it as a collection of thrillers. Well, there are murders and a little thrill in each story, but I really expected it more thrilling at all.

Same for me! I really want this book but it says not available. Don't know if it is because I'm in Australia.
